Amy Ryan on Annette Bening in ‘The Kids Are All Right’

Actors on actors

“I was knocked out by Annette Bening and Julianne Moore. Fantastic, both of them. Annette Bening was just extraordinary. That Joni Mitchell moment when she sings at the table, it’s so intimate and you’re kind of embarrassed and then kind of moved that she takes the time to go through the whole song. Director Lisa Cholodenko allows us to sit at that table with those people, lets that moment have enough time to register all of those feelings. It’s so rare in one film that there are two full-drawn characters who happen to be women. It’s great that neither of the actresses would settle for just being the wife in that relationship, and you see that in the choices they both make, as supported with Lisa’s brilliant script.”
